      Fun, Quick Overview of Florence
      Great time seeing Florence. Loved the surprise stop at the leather purse store. Sure beats walking every place, and you get to see much more.

      Excellent Tour of Uffizi answer Academia Galleries
      What a fabulous private tour provided today by Made of Tuscany and our amazing guide Giacomo. We saw so many people walking around both galleries with books and earbuds so they could get obtain basic info about the pictures and sculptures. We, however, were able to find out the details of each work and the story behind each work that really made the works come to life, and in turn, made each work more interesting. Giacomo was able to mix the descriptions of the works with histories of the time, stories of the artists (and their employers, families, loves, etc.) and humor. The hours flew by as we saw famous works in a way we never would have seen or understood without Giacomo. Our family highly recommends Made of Tuscany and our guide Giacomo.

      Thanks Medici family
      The Medici Chapel is a beautiful example of Florentine art and architecture. The tombs of the Medici are spectacular to see.

      Made of Tuscany Ruined our Vacation
      This company ruined our Tuscan vacation. I booked for 4 people e and arrived at the meeting spot a half hour early. No one had us on their list. I asked the people in pink shirts and blue shirts at the check in, I asked every bus driver, no one had our name and none of them had ever heard of Made in Tuscany. When I finally got through to the office to ask what had happened ( the office called me back after all the buses had left and we were there alone),the woman on the phone hung upon me. The reason we came to Tuscany was to visit Seina, Chianti and San Gimignano. We were leaving the area the next day so couldn't book another tour. We were devastated. The company said they would refund my $360 but that didn't make up for the fact we didn't visit the areas we came for. The company then blamed it on someone else, they said they had contracted withanother carrier ( they never told me) and the carrier's system dropped our names. They never took responsibility. We brought my niece and nephew and this company ruined a $9k trip and the memories we hoped to make. There are plenty of tour companies, DO NOT USE THIS ONE! Read less

      Beware!
      Beware! I purchased tickets on this site. The money was taken from my account immediately, yet I have never received confirmation. I have chased and chased and just get ignored. Lesson learnt 🤬

      Amazing hidden gem of fabulous frescoes
      A must-do place to visit while in Florence. This amazing religious estate offers a taste of life for Dominican friars but, more impressively, a wide range of amazing fresco paintings in their dormitories, of which a large number are by Fra Angelico (15th century). To really appreciate the skills and time put into these pieces, you really must visit the Church and the dormitories. In addition, there are lots of other unique historical treasures, including 15th-century manuscripts used for music. A must-do place to visit.

      Not what I expected
      If you have plenty of time and are into walking on gravel and up hills do visit. I stupidly thought it was a garden not just trees and statues.. Seem to take forever just to exit.

      Not a wine tour
      Not a wine tour, it is a walking tour of sights with a stop at a wine shop at the end! You also have to drink the wine at this location in a plastic glass. If you are looking for a wine tour ie tasting wine at different locations then this is not the one be warned.

      Vanessia was very knowledgable but went too fast and was hard to understand when she wore her mask.

      Medicis departed in Mannerist glory.
      Architecturally, in this case more is more. Today's billionaires couldn't do better. This is an excellent example of Michaelangelo's mannerism, the style that followed Brunelleschi's more restrained interpretation of Roman architecture. The surprise was that in the side room, good old Lorenzo the Magnificent had a modest sarcophagus decorated with unfinished works by Michaelangelo. His descendants were treated better. Mike left for better opportunities in Rome before the work was finished. His design for the grand chapel wasn't constructed until much later. We couldn't get skip the line tickets ahead of time but there were only six people in line when we got there in mid-morning.

    We had a wonderful tour today with our English speaking guide, Eleonora. She was extremely knowledgable and provided detailed background to the works of Michelangelo and Donatello during our 2-hour private tour of the Bargello Museum. We started the tour in the nearby Piazza della Signora where a copy of Michelangelo's David stands, and admired the newly restored Neptune Fountain before proceeding into the museum. If you want to learn more about the lives of these artists and the context under which they created the works on display in the Bargello, I highly recommend this tour, and particularly our guide Eleonora.

    Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Eleonora is one of our best guides and she thanks you too. This tour is very original, off the classic paths and unveals the important features of the Renaissance sculpture. Most people do not know that the Bargello Museum is as interesting as the Accademia Museum.So thank you for pointing it out. Enjoy Florence and Italy! Susanna
